The venue is of course the best part. Great views of the channel and torch lake. Service was fine. They serve mostly fried overpriced food. If they revamped the menu and updated the place a bit it would be so much better.

Haven't been here in years. Today we saw someone at our marina with a Dockside t-shirt on and we said to each other...we should go there for dinner! SO glad we did. The fried pickles are amazing...the addition of cheese and ham make them so...More

The dockside is a great place to grab a burger and a beer sit outside on the porch and watch the boats come in from torch Lake. Definitely check it.

We met our friends there before heading out on the lake. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. It is nice to have a place where you can dock your boat and enjoy some food.

We just stopped for a beverage and to enjoy the beautiful view. Service was good, they were busy but handled it well.

Simple menu, but lots of fun items to order. The view from the Deck on the sores of Torch Lake is a must see in itself. The food is a bonus!

If you are looking for a place to eat excellent food while sitting by a beautiful lake, visit Dockside. The perch sandwich, fish tacos, and burgers are excellent. Substitute the onion rings for a treat. Service was fast and friendly. Glad we found this place.
